Vivo has released a flagship smartphone with a retractable camera

Vivo has released a flagship smartphone with a retractable camera

All sensors are hidden under the display as the device uses a Screen SoundCasting technology that vibrates the screen for delivering sound instead of an earpiece. But best/worst/most absurdly of all (depending on your predisposition), the 8MP selfie cam pops up from the phone whenever you need it.

The Vivo Nex isn't just about the screen and its pop-up camera.

Since there is no notch on this smartphone, it was a challenge for Vivo where to place the selfie camera. The device comes in three variants - NEX S with 128GB storage option and 256GB storage variants and a much affordable NEX A with Snapdragon 710 processor. The futuristic concept phone showcases by Vivo earlier this year at MWC 2018, which sports a truly bezel-free display with no notch and barely any chin, and a pop-up selfie camera, is now no longer a concept.

The Vivo NEX S flaunts an in-display fingerprint sensor. There's 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Nex S with 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage will retail for RMB 4,498 (around Rs 47,500). Moreover, the company is also offering a top-spec variant of Nex S with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which comes with a price tag of RMB 4,998 (around Rs 52,700).

Optics include a dual camera setup with 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors having F/1.8 and F/2.4 apertures respectively. As for the primary camera on the back, a dual set of 12MP and 5MP is used, which could be seen as a letdown as similar flagships are using stronger setups, such as the OnePlus 6 that comes with 16MP and 20MP.

At an event in China, smartphone maker Vivo has launched the first nearly full screen smartphone that includes a neat, hidden selfie camera. On the software front, the smartphone will run Android 8.1 Oreo with OPPO's Color OS UI on top. The Vivo NEX A is priced at 3,898 Yuan which makes it approximately Rs 41,000. It also boasts a 4,000mAh battery, which we're guessing is so big as to power that huge-ass screen.

The NEX X has in-display fingerprint sensor but NEX A features a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. The new Vivo mobile is available in two colours- ruby red and diamond black.

As for pricing, in China, the Vivo Nex with the SD845 chip is approx $850, and the version based upon the SD710 is approx $600 (these are Chinese prices converted to USA dollars).
